Scheme & Features Pre-Bid Meeting for Expression of Interest
Scheme formulated to accelerate growth of food processing industry in the country Cluster Based Approach Demand driven with focus on strong backward and forward integration Enabling Infrastructure Creation along the supply chain Creation of Central Processing Centre and Primary Processing Centres Common Facilities and amenities to be assisted Leverage investments in food processing units Stakeholder participation with private led initiative through Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)
Assistance to creation of common enabling facilities Typical Project Cost envisaged – Rs crore Land – not eligible for funding out of GOI grant Assistance from Ministry Limited to non-land component of the project 50% of project cost limited to Rs 50 crore in general areas 75% of project cost limited to Rs 50 crore in difficult & hilly areas and ITDP notified areas
Mega Food Parks Holistic & cluster based approach- centralized facilities for key activities which are technology and capital intensive Specific focus on setting up backward linkages for establishing viable supply chains - Provision for farm proximate aggregation & minimal processing infrastructure Infrastructure needs of a viable Food park /Zone estimated to be about Rs.1200 million(US $ 30 million) including farm proximate primary processing facilities Emphasis on economic viability
PPCs would be fed by 5-10 collection centres PPCs on 2-5 acres of land Food park ( acres) fed by PPCs CPC PPC Food Park PPC – Primary Processing Centre PPC CC Extended Storage Processing To Value add Processing To Value add Grading Sorting Grading Sorting Mega Food Park Model
Field Collection Centers Primary Processing Centers Precooling, Grading pulping Sorting, waxing, packing, Temporary storage, Central Processing Center Pulping, Aseptic packing, CA chamber, Cold Store QC lab, Logistics center, Processing Units etc Mega Food Park - CPC Importer Exporter Value added Product Domestic sales Fresh Products PPC Domestic Retail sales Farmer GroupsSelf Help Groups Individual farmers
Central Processing Centre : To consist of Developed plots for food processing units, Built factory sheds for MSEs and Core processing facilities along with basic infrastructure Core Processing Facilities At CPC : Sorting and grading, Packaging unit, Dry warehouses, Specialized storage facilities including CA Chambers, Variable humidity stores, Pre-cooling chambers, Ripening chambers etc, Cold chain infrastructure, Irradiation facilities, Steam generation & sterilization units, Food incubation-cum-development centers etc. At least 50% of the project cost (excluding land cost) shall be towards creation of above mentioned facilities Above is an indicative list of facilities and SPV may select or induct any facilities based on need & viability Adequate Consultation with the potential food processing units to finalize the components of CPC.
Primary Processing Centres(PPCs) : To serve as spoke for CPC Core Processing Facilities At Primary Processing Centers: Sorting and grading, packaging facilities, dry warehouses, specialized cold stores including pre- cooling chambers, ripening chambers, reefer vans, mobile pre- coolers and collection vans PPCs are envisaged as key components to facilitate strong linkages for sustainable supply for adequate raw materials to ensure at least 250 days of operation PPCs are to be strategically located for an optimum coverage in zone of influence of Mega Food Park.
Factory Buildings Provision For MSEs – Maximum 10% of total allottable area for setting up units Enabling Basic Infrastructure Roads, drainage, water supply, electricity supply ETP, logistics facilities, weighbridges etc Non –core Infrastructure Admin buildings, training centers, canteen, workers hostel, trade/display center etc: Cost of non-core infrastructure facilities, not exceeding 10% of the project cost, would be eligible for grant purpose Project Implementation Expense Cost of hiring domain consultants (PMC) by SPV – limited to 2% of eligible grant amount
Supply Chain Management – Strategy Appropriate institutional development at grass roots level for backward linkages Involvement of farmers/producers as stakeholders Organizing farmers in SHGs-Cluster approach Possibility of formation of Producers Company involving SHGs/ farmers can be an option Wherever possible, Centers to be owned and managed by SHGs/Entrepreneurs Possibilities of contract farming
SPV can be constituted by stakeholders like infrastructure developers, FIs/Banks/PE Firms, Org. retailers, Food Processors & other service providers, Farmer Orgs. etc… SPV to be a Body Corporate registered under the Companies Act SPV should have wide dispersal of equity holding so that it enjoys benefit of collective composition Each SPV to have at least three entrepreneurs / business units independent of each other with no common directors at least one should be from the food processing sector with at least 26% equity in the SPV
SPVs to bring in at least 20% of the project cost, including the cost of land, as their contribution- 10% in case of Difficult, hilly & ITDP notified areas Combined net worth of the shareholders of the SPV should not be less than Rs. 50 Cr - Food Processor should have at least 10 Cr of net worth Government agencies may also become shareholders in SPV, holding to be less than 26% of share capital so as to ensure private sector character of the SPV
Reconstitution of SPV allowed but at least 75% of the initially approved shareholders to remain intact during implementation period of project. Following points are to considered while constituting the SPV Promoter with negative net worth in SPV is not allowed Promoter being a defaulter in RBI list is not allowed Proposed equity should be in proportion to net worth of individual promoter
Formulation of Detailed Project Report (DPR) Procure land & ensure external infrastructure linkages for the projects Obtain key statutory approvals/clearances including environmental clearances etc. Achieve financial closure of project Responsible for development, ownership & management of Mega Food Park Operating a Trust and Retention Account (TRA) to ensure utilization of grant in a transparent and judicious manner and maintain proper account Execute project in a transparent, efficient & timely manner
At the time of Final Approval, the SPV must be in possession of requisite Land. If the land is in possession with one of the promoters, then SPV should have clear title of land and it should be duly registered Approval for change in land use for industrial/infrastructural purposes to be taken Provision of sub-lease clause to be stated clearly in case of Government land. The area for CPC should have good accessibility to Market and Transport network
